Georgetown

Victorian commercial buildings anchored by the more modern Beaux Arts style Williamson County Courthouse provide the setting. Shops, restaurants and museums will keep you busy. In this sophisticated and historic square, take a moment to conjure up a time, before the present courthouse, when the smells, noises, and traffic were determined by the hoof and spur, and stepping off the boardwalk meant deep trouble for any footwear. That was the Georgetown streetscape during the colorful cattle drive period of the 1870s–80s. Learn all about local history at the Williamson Museum on the square. Free tours Friday and Saturday.
